If everything goes according to plan it'll be finished in 2 or 3 days time

Thank you guys. Christian, this kit is from... 1962! Too bad the canopies are so crude and incorrect.

In 1/72, Lindberg was the most conspicuous with this rig, but MPC, Octopus, and even Revell did kits. Nothing since the Octopus kit in 2003. I built out this rendition of the Airfix kit and was not impressed. Canopy issues stand out in my memory as a major sore point.
12. September 2015, 02:53
Jan Voorbij
I already suspected that,Kelly. And than thwere is the problem with that ridiculous machine gun ring... I hope to solve that with scrathbuilding.

This one earns a "Do NOT Recommend" status from me. Canopies are crap. Struts...well, are struts.
22. April 2013, 22:24
Roy McKenzie
It may be a bad fitting kit but yours looks good.
22. April 2013, 22:28
Kelly Wellington
Thanks...distance and lots of fiddling makes a difference. The pilot's canopy is open because it looks like trash trying to close it. There is a gap betwixt the first and second gunner's canopies that is not supposed to be there. And...one of the wing floats is wonky. I think I have to accept that I don't do 'photorealism' too well, but I can get by on a makeshift 'impressionism'. 8^D}

Lars Opland
Be all that as it may, this is almost the "only game in town" for a 1:72 Kingfisher, & the old Lindberg kit looks less like one when finished. For me, the worst thing about the Airfix kit is the perfectly flat cylinder end for a crank case. On the up side, it has floats, beaching gear & optional land plane gear...& I have seen a couple built to high contest standards.

Is this a new tool?
8. April 2012, 21:59
Gary Edwards
Bill,
I don't think so. I've had the kit for a long time. I have a spreadsheet where I have all of my kits listed and this one came up. My list didn't have the 'A0' prefix so I suspect that the kit shown here is a rebox of the older kit. The kit itself that I have is buried in one of my stash boxes. If I remember right, it wasn't that great of a kit, probably 70's vintage with raised panel lines. Hope this helps. Gary
9. April 2012, 21:28

I suspected as much, but since Airfix has been doing a lot of new tool 1:72 WWII subjects, I figured I would ask. Thanks!
